"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Let Them Eat Cake Centerpiece

By: Susie Coelho for Krylon

Want a centerpiece that looks good enough to eat? How about a gift idea that is bound to leave a sweet impression? Stacking tins to look like a cake adds whimsy and style. The options are endless but here is an easy way to create a lasting effect and this project from Krylon is sure to stack up!

Cake inspired Centerpiece

Materials:

  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Primer - White (#51315)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Bright White (#53517)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Gum Drop (#51513)
  • Krylon Matte Finish - Clear (#1311)
  • 1 extra large size round tin
  • 1 large size round tin
  • 1 med. size round tin
  • 1 small size round tin
  • 1 extra small size round tin
  • Fresh or faux hydrangeas or other flowers that align with your color palette
  • Blue painters tape
  • Newspaper

Steps:

  1. Start by spraying all the tins with Krylon Primer. It the tins already have a design on them that you are trying to cover, you may need to spray a couple layers of primer. Allow paint to dry between layers.
     
  2. Once all tins are evenly coated and dry, spray all the tins with the Krylon Satin Bright White. Wait for the paint to completely dry.
     
  3. Take the extra large, medium and extra small tins and tape evenly spaced vertical lines all around the side of each tin.
     
  4. Cover the top and bottom of each tin used in the previous step with either tape or newspaper and spray Krylon Gum Drop around the side of each tin.
     
  5. After the paint dries, carefully remove the tape from the sides.
     
  6. Finish off with a protective coat of Krylon Matte Finish.
     
  7. Decorate with fresh or faux hydrangeas or other flowers that align with your color palette.
     
  8. Display with cake accessories on a table or even on a cake plate or cake pedestal.
